Abstract : The term 'retrofugal flux' is introduced to include the backscattering plus the backward secondary emission occuring when a beam of monoenergetic electrons strikes a thick target. A comparison of computations of the angular distribution and the energy spectrum of this flux is made with experimental determinations in order to evaluate the validity of the approximations used in the calculations.
